The Bombing of 23 Wall Street

As the bells of Trinity Church tolled noon, on September 16, 1920, no one noticed the horse drawn wagon pull up beside 23 Wall Street. Within seconds, a massive explosion ripped through the building was served as the headquarters of J. P. Morgan's bank.

103 WASHINGTON ST: Heaven, Hell & Purgatory

Nestled between the new W Hotel and an abandoned lot a few blocks south of the World Trade Center, a Neo-gothic building at 103 Greenwich Street has a history as incongruous as its architecture. Now an Irish pub, the building began as the home of Dutch immigrant Ryneer Suydam and his family in 1799.
